Format: Paperback
This book is very detailed in the process of breeding and not enough as to Care, Nutrition, Behavior and Training as the Title of the book leads you to believe. It does state what your ACD needs as far as "needs a job to do" or "daily exercise" but does not give enough suggestions or examples for the reader to follow or try out. For me, this book is too generic. It says "Exercise needed" but no suggestions are given, "Nutrition" but no amounts or recommendations, and so on. The rest of the book is dedicated to the purchase and breeding. I think this book might be informative for someone thinking about buying a ACD but for someone that allready ownes a ACD this book offers very little information. But hey, the pictures are great.

I have an Australian Cattle Dog myself, and this is the book that I had from the very beginning. It was pretty good, though it didn't give much info on how to deal with the Cattle Dogs large amount of energy. If you want a book on the background of the Australian Cattle dog, this is a good book, but don't get it if you are looking to solve problems.

Format: Paperback
This book is aimed at the person who owns or plans to own an Australian Cattle Dog as a household pet and companion. It thoroughly covers all aspects of care and training necessary for ACDs living in those circumstances. The book does not purport itself as a training book for professional livestock owner. Those who use this book as a companion guide find it fits the bill beautifully--Richard G. Beauchamp, author.

Describes my half breed ACD to a tee. He demands time, time, and more time but the rewards are as great as the book states. I have found a rubber ball that squeaks can keep him happy for hours fetching and running. This book has taught me training ideas I have never seen before and in just one week I can see the results.

Format: Paperback
This book claims to be a training manual for cattle dogs. It turns out to be a basic training manual for ANY dog owner. Nothing specific about training for herding, hand signals, etc. I plan to donate it to the public library for new dog owners; it doesn't cut it for cattle ranchers!

Format: Paperback
We were thinking of buying an Australian Cattle Dog after seeing them work on a ranch while we were on vacation. The dogs are extremely smart and we liked their looks but realizing how much time and attention they needed changed our minds because of our work situation at this time. We decided to wait another year when one of us would be home at all times. This book tells about what the dog is really like and how it should be trained and treated.Lots of breed books we read only told the plus features of the breeds and not what to be careful of.

Format: Paperback
We bought this book after we adopted a little ACD from an animal shelter in March, 2008. It gives very useful information, and is written for the owner who primarily wants them as a family pet. Probably would not be useful for people who want breeding or ranching type information. We know what to expect because the ACDs demand lots of time, but the rewards are great. Intelligence level is extremely high along with the energy level. All of our future dogs will be ACDs.

Since so many people are getting this kind of dog for home and farm security, it is wise to get this book and learn how to work with the natural drives, motivations and tendencies of the breed for the best possible experience for dog and owner alike.
